Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

  • Summary: World War II has never been this interesting. Five years ago, most gamers where tired of seeing WWII games, and now the cool kids are playing modern warfare shooters. If you're sick of the current trend in this genre, and want something that's a little bit different, then have I got a game for you.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad (PC) Review

  • Conclusion: TL;DR part: Red Orchestra 2 does what many war games have trouble accomplishing, conveying what war feels like.  However, AI, overuse of in game dialogue and other niggles really detract from catapulting RO2 to the top of the FPS war game heap.  The multiplayer side, in some instances, does alleviate the problems found in the single player campaign.  But you also sacrifice the single player centric pacing that is carefully narrated.

  • Excerpt: Recently I had the privilege to receive the deluxe edition of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad from Tripwire Interactive. Running on the Unreal Engine 3, it's a World War II first-person shooter focusing on a realistic take on the war. As the title suggests, Heroes of Stalingrad is centered around the Battle of Stalingrad, July 1942 through February 1943. You can play as either the Russians or the Germans in both single-player and multiplayer.

  • Conclusion: Satisfying, suspenseful multiplayer is more than the sum of its parts, but marred by bugs. Ignore the awful singleplayer.

  • Summary: A first-person shooter for those who don't want to keep hopping
  • Pros: Solid gunplay; something different in a genre plagued with Call of Duty clones; excellent multiplayer combat.
  • Cons: Shoddy presentation; riddled with bugs, some intrusive; you're easy to spot in cover; Germans and Soviets look far too alike; poor AI in campaign.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

  • Excerpt: The Eastern Front during World War II was a struggle of idealism, sweat, blood, and exhaustion. There’s only a limited number of FPS games that have delivered the conflict between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union to PC gamers, and even fewer that have given players the opportunity to experience the battle from both sides.
  • Pros: Immersive single player campaign, several informed tutorials, squad/tank command, large and detailed maps, historically accurate weapons and tanks, minimal HUD for realism, online battles with up to 64 players, an unlocking system for multiplayer, many options available for online hosts/servers.
  • Cons: Often clumsy gameplay, annoying and unintelligent AI, graphics are lesser than the competition, redundant single player objectives.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad Review

GameSpot
21 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Getting killed in Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is not like the usual death in a multiplayer first-person shooter. Most games in this genre see you dying heroically with the bodies of enemies all around you. Here, death comes very quietly. Typically, you die without a clue that anything is wrong, taking a single bullet in the head fired by an unseen enemy.
  • Pros: Mostly authentic look at infantry combat in WWII, Extremely challenging, due to realistic modeling of damage and cover, Atmospheric, well-designed maps
  • Cons: Single-player campaigns afflicted with terrible AI, Has a very steep learning curve for new players

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad – Review (PC)

  • Conclusion: Bugs aside, more can be said about improvements in not only graphics, but in bringing realism to the FPS table in ways that don’t alienate some players. Chances are you will either love or hate this game, but it’s a solid multi-player experience for those seeking a challenging FPS that does its best to evoke images and adversity from real war zones.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: World War 2 shooters, for whatever reason, became incredibly passé a few years ago. While it was certainly a milked setting, quite a few classics were born out of Saving Private Ryan lust – and then they pretty much vanished. Red Orchestra 2 is both exciting as a return to a – for many – beloved setting, and as a more in-depth shooter amidst a year full of high-profile cinematic games.
